SUBJECT: DEMARCHE DELIVERED ON DRAFT RESOLUTION CONDEMNING
RAPE AS STATE TOOL

REF: STATE 135255

(SBU) MFA Director Human Right Brandusa Predescu on October 1
told D/POLCONS that GOR was discussing internally the
possibility of going beyond co-sponsorship, and requesting
co-authorship of the USG's Draft UN Resolution condemning
rape as an instrument of state policy. The GOR inter-agency
working group is expected to reach a decision soon. She
noted that amendments are always the risk to any draft
resolution, and acknowledged that the GOR understands the
limitations for the USG. Predescu suggested that the U.S.
should make a special effort to convince those member states
most likely to put forward amendments that such a move would
prove conterproductive and ultimately would detract from the
emphasis that the USG would want in its draft resolution.
